Ferris (3059) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle - Toasted malts, cherry, brown sugar, raisin and oak. Dark brown with a rich thick brown head. Oak, cherry, toasted malts, light sourness and finishes woody. The wood cuts the sweetness and that sourness is just about perfect for balance. Really nice.

ShivanDragon (1441) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2013
rood/bruin helder met schuimige kaki kraag
aroma van fruitig zuurtje, kersen, mout en bruine suiker
smaken: redelijk zoet, licht bitter, matig zuur, redelijk fruitig (rood fruit in de vorm van kersen en donker fruit in de vorm van pruim), klein beetje tannine, licht gemout, licht kruidig
medium body, glad van textuur, laag van co2, géén extreem fruitbier, mooi licht zurige onder toon, kersen en donkere fruiten maken het tot een mooi bier

ruigo (1037) - PORTUGAL - DEC 3, 2013
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a reddish brown colour with a minimal off-white head. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more sweet than bitter, a bit unbalanced. Overall, a nice beer.

StevieT (544) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2013
I didn’t like it at all, the sour flavour doesn’t do it for me. It’s a well made beer, I’m just not a fan.

IndianaRed (2331) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle redish brown pour with a thin quick white fizzy head. Woody sour aroma, cidery and slight vinegar flavors. I like the flanders/sour browns but this one was a little off. Strange bitter possibly oxidized flavor.

On tap @Cimmeria, bottle @manyplaces. Dark copper, topped by off white head, some persistance, some alcing. Light body, lively carbonation, some crispy in texture. Taste is more into the sweet side, subtle sour, but balanced.

Iphonephan (3059) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2013
From a 33 cl bottle shared in Avon NC thanks to Ryan. Pours a clear reddish cola with a thin off white head. Nutty aroma. Sweet flavor masking an underlying tart grape flavor, with a hint of oak. Sweet and tart finish.
